bikefix Exclusive Review *update*: On-One Scandal 29er

Exclusive! We've just heard back from Brant at On-One that there will be a slot-dropout Scandal for some time in early 2008. Even better, he's sent through a pic. While this example has a bent seat tube, the production frame is slated to receive a straight version. His seems to be a 26in version built with cyclocross wheels and tires (35c or so)- look at all the space between the rim and outside of the tire. The dropout looks tidy too- we like how the disc caliper is tucked out of the way within the rear triangle. Sister company Planet X's carbon rims add a bit of flash to boot. Maybe if they're ready in time, we'll be able to score one for 24HitOP...
